stuart: the constitutional amendment is not an easy one. >> and enormous -- stuart: we found some areas of agreement between myself, i am a conservative, and don. we both agreed that this economy will do well because of energy. we both believe it is on the upswing because of housing. >> that is all you have to say? stuart: we also agree on taxes. >> we should have a free enterprise, free market system. stuart: why are you such a supporter of the most leftist president in american history? >> it is not just a chief
financial officer, it is a leader of our nation. he has no peers when it comes to any other candidate on the republican side or any other republican sitting in the senate. we are out of time. connell: good morning, everyone. i am connell mcshane. dagen: i am dagen mcdowell. things are looking up on the jobs front. connell: monica crowley. dagen: dreamliner, the troubles have not gone away for boeing. michael dell has ordered one of them. connell: then there is jamie dimon and john chambers. you will be hearing from both of them in this hour. liz claman at the world economic
forum. cheryl: stocks now and every 15 minutes. apple. nicole: i will show you apple in a moment. the dow, the s&p are doing quite well. five-year highs. highs that we have not seen since 2007. the tech heavy nasdaq, apple weighing on the nasdaq. are we almost at 14,000? we cannot believe it. what a five-year run this has been. ibm helping the markets along yesterday. today, apple delivering news that is below the analysts estimate. the shareholders are certainly disappointed today when they see their stock down over 10%. $461. the low of the day was $450. not a good day for apple while all of its competitors are
soaring today. connell: the stock market looks pretty good. the economy looking better. john brown joins us. senior economic consultant at euro pacific. have we turned the corner a little bit? >> i think there is reason for some optimism. i think strategically the economy is still in very bad shape. tactically, consumers are beginning to spend. that is a good thing. things are getting better. therefore people are spending. government has to take reality down the road. it has borrowed against the credit of the young and the future. meanwhile, consumers have
deleveraged. they have saved a considerable amount of cash despite low interest rates. now, they are frustrated about a recession. they have negative interest rates and attempted to buy a new car. the attempted with new families to buy new housing. things are picking up, in that respect. that is good. connell: first of all, and the jobless claims, some of this may be seasonal. we may pay for this, so to speak. on your point about consumer spending, i wonder why people are more confident and they are not thinking about the issues and washington. do people just not care about that? certainly, they must care about their paycheck. isn't it discouraging to a lot of people to have smaller paychecks? >> that is a very interesting thing you say.
i totally agree with you. i did not say confident. they are prepared to spend. i think that is a big danger. masses of money being pushed into the system. we are not facing reality anymore. connell: huge critics of that type of behavior. look at the stock market. off again today. soon it will be at 14,000. the dow at 13867. that makes people feel better. do you like what you see in the stock market or does it worry you more about the future? what do you make of it? >> of course, what you are saying is absolutely right. the fact is, individuals are not ready to return to the stock market. it is mainly institutional work.
this great cash balance and so there is money flowing into the stock market. i think people see the bond market is the biggest travel ball. there is reason to be optimistic in certain areas. for example, in natural gas if you have a producer, those areas, i think, are very good. the energy picture for the united states is really quite bullish looking to the future. that will help. connell: always good to see you. thanks a lot. >> thank you very much,. connell: the big story in d.c. today would be john kerry. there he is. from what we have been told, a protester just had to be dragged out of that room a few minutes ago. the current record. of state hillary clinton was there yesterday testifying about
the benghazi attacks. >> the democrats have their drool buckets ready. they think she will be the next president and hoping that she thinks of them favorably. it is all about 2016 for most of them. there were some republicans who opposed some tough questions to her answer real questions to her. dagen: to look at her and say, i would have fired you, that is just posturing. >> that is true, dagen. so much of this did not get to the core view. they knew full well that it was not due to a spontaneous uprising. connell: what does it matter now? >> that i think was the quote of
the week, if not the quote of the year. i found it to be so outrageous. first of all, it matters to the four families of those four dead americans. it also matters that she and this administration lied to the american people for four months about what caused this in the cover-up afterwards. the other thing that matters is that the lack of respect from benghazi has been sent to our enemies. we were covering the algerian hostage crisis. when our enemy sees that the united states will not retaliate when america is hit, when americans are killed or taken hostage, that emboldens the enemy. you will see more and more of algeria. that is what matters. dagen: what did we find out that we did not already know? there is one suspect still that they have under surveillance. beyond that, what is the point
of this? >> it was pointless. what were they covering up? that was the core issue. what were we really doing in benghazi? why was the ambassador there with only two armed guard that 9:30 p.m. at night? we did not get to any of the core issues. it was all just political posturing speak. i found myself making about future, you know, it is almost sickening to do this, 2016 and watching her and marco rubio. will secretary clinton run? you should be thinking about other things. >> there are four dead americans here. that has not happened in 20-30 years. we deserve answers. families deserve answers. instead, all we got was politics.
dagen: most lawmakers do not how to cross-examine a lawyer. >> most of them are lawyers. go figure. dagen: good to see you. thank you so much, monica. connell: the stock market is looking pretty good. if you are a smoker and you live in oregon, light up now because soon, you will not be able to do so. the state of oregon is posing a bill to make cigarettes illegal without a doctor's prescription. if they pass eight, violators of the new law would face a penalty and a year in prison. you think google has your back? you may want to think again. google complied 88% of the time over 20,000 requests made by governments around the world. request four data off now by 70%

37.5-38. they crushed them. connell: for years, to set the bar low. now they claim, whether it was a reasonable -- do you believe that? charles: again, you can have a difference of several tricks that you put out there as guidelines for investors and analysts. you still have to beat them. i appreciate that you told me about your gross margins, but year-over-year is a crusher. international business is starting to slide. it may suggest that, you know what, the people around the world i can afford this apple products have full penetration. we talked about this rumor. what kind of margins would they
see? there is a cold around this stock. by the way, if you send me hateful tweets, you may not want to do that on your corporate about if i may one day patronize your business. charles: it never got over value from traditional valuation metrics. the overall market. you could argue that it was cheap yesterday and cheap today. before i go, technically, there is not a lot of support in this thing. i do not think you get that low. that is from a technician's point of view. connell: thank you, charlie. dagen: nasty comments from people just talking about the stock.

create a nice fundamental situation. that provides a lot of opportunity for policymakers to make mistakes or mess things up. and the extension in front of -- a sequester coming. the extension of the budgets for the coming year, in europe we still have spain refinancing 20% of gdp in debt, more than enough opportunities, that is not a best case. >> you are talking about the united states, the worst enemy at this point. to get these jobless claims at week 5-year lows, nice to see but if unemployment is at 10%, in range for 2013, and it will take 1/2% of of the gdp, no jobs, don't even have an
economic recovery and no jobs. >> not necessarily a bad economy, we are in an okay economy, not great because 1/2%, from a fiscal austerity coming through the pike, the job situation is improving gradually, housing is and i still wind that has been a head wind for multiple years. the economy is in ok shape but not something we can jump up and down and get excited that we're off to the races at this point in time so we have a lot of work to do and a lot of chances to make errors. we are advising people to be cautiously optimistic in your portfolio positioning. >> which target is at the end of the year? >> don't make s&p targets on a 1-year basis. we can say over the next couple years we are thinking 6% to annual% gains. >> that would be ok considering

stock at a price-earnings multiple phase and for a lot of shareholders who got shut out now is there time to get back in but the technical guys talk about support levels and apple had this $505 support that fell through, the next one at 460. if it closes before 460 today can it go even farther down? >> it is possible. i'm not a technical analyst. we really focus on fundamental analysis. as you point out you look at calendar year 2014 which we updated cabane revise downward last night, apple trading at less than we kind times earnings. pretty astounding. >> they came 47.5 million iphone sales. that is a boat load but wall street $150 million. is this an overreaction? >> we think it is an overreaction. one point to bring out is growth is still grappling apple.
if you look at the ipad, the iphone, 22%, 28% growth, very respectable, not the explosive growth. >> when you are earning $13 billion it is tough to have robust growth on top of that. you get the feeling this is not just numbers anymore. this is promotion. everyone fell in love with apple ten years ago, almost 20% now. the law for apple now going to divert away into other tech stocks? is google better by? >> yes. i agree with that sentiment. as apple has fallen, that found other homes, temporary homes. we have hold recommendation on google. we think apple is a good place to be and here's another fact. if you think of the december quarter, apple, $147 billion in

committee over the benghazi attacks yesterday. >> we were misled, there were supposedly protests and something spraying out of that and that was easily obtained, that was not a fact. the american people could have known that within days and didn't. >> effectively and four dead americans, was in a protest or because of guys out for what one might decide to kill americans? what difference at this point does it make? is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again. >> middle east and terrorism analysts bother of the coming revolution, struggle for freedom and the least, the big statement from her was -- what difference does it make? does that serve the u.s.'s goal in the middle east right now? >> of course not. just imagine what is the
difference between four people killed by erica payne or jihadists? a huge difference. if we received al qaeda and those militias as friendly most likely those will be received as friendly because they were attacking gaddafi. they don't have security measures and most likely this is the reason why the administration was confused. it is all about why the attacks of taken place, who is coordinating them and what is the future of these attacks? we can begin again by the same people with the same tactics. cheryl: do you think this is a global policy failure? that is crucial right now because we are now into the confirmation hearings for john kerry from massachusetts who may likely be the next secretary of state. out as a live picture you're looking at, and request and what he would do most likely in the middle east. where are we? are we failing? >> i wish in those hearings with the new secretary would ask the question, what is the general
direction, is al qaeda going down, stated by the administration or are we seeing an expansion of al qaeda from somalia and more importantly the capacity for a strike in different countries. to renew our views and al qaeda. cheryl: if you of the arabs spring no one was planning or ready in particular in this country for the rise of al qaeda in places like libya, no one saw syria coming and that is what we have on our hands to go back and say we missed it, we thought it was great that all these countries were finding freedom and democracy and all the sudden you have terror suspect in every country, and all even in egypt. >> absolutely right. we look at the archives and analysis of the administration in the fall of 2010 a few months before, there is nothing that leads us to believe they understood there was a revolt
coming and nothing to the rest of the leaf out, would take advantage with these. cheryl: thank you. dennis: will live again, my exclusive 1-on-1 with greg raborn next. cheryl: no jackpot for las vegas. why casino revenues rose substantially in the city but first we take a look at the winners on the s&p. big-name for you. netflix, take a look at that one. we will be right back.

it was $700, $600 million market cap, this was something everyone was taking a look at. at that time, got to get it in the dow and now they are probably saying be glad it is not in doubt. this huge move to the downside, that would be worth 415 negative dow points. anyone clamoring for it, these are waiting and the s&p 500 is 3.6% but still heavily related in the nasdaq composite and that is why you are seeing the divergence, the nasdaq lower and back to you. dennis: thanks very much. private investors take a profitable twinkie? we may find out as hostess negotiates the sell-off, big brain name, an exclusive interview proceed eo greg rayburn. this friday you going to court on the first big part of yourself offs, $360 million deal, to the flowers buyout

basedded on grounded economic value which are then deployed. it's not perfect because the deployment mechanism is not perfect in the u.k., and, you know, sometimes the issues of too much cost control and others. there could be other systems as one as far away as india where the patient accountability, because the patient pay system, it is big, and through that, you actually drive competition between different health care providers, and through that, get high quality and low cost so, you know, what i look for are a number of things. where does the health care system value outcomes over procedures? where does the health care system give patients some level of transparency and accountability, and, finally, is there a system where the government really, main authorities are really on top of this and are encouraging it, and leadership, i have to say, you know, the chinese government is
